Great interview with a record collecting DJ

In a an insightful interview with the music blog Dust and Grooves, the Los Angeles-based DJ The Gaslamp Killer answers questions about his journey with music and records. The story begins with a quote:

Records are time capsules. They’re emotional, spiritual, energetically-bound pieces of vinyl. They were cut with force and energy, not by a programmer.

In the digital age it’s easy to forget that physical things like records can have long and rich histories of how they came to be where they are, unlike MP3s which only exist on hard drives.
